"Diagnostic Strategies 2017" SIMULCAST
Instructor: John Anello
This seminar will help you properly diagnose modern vehicles focusing on top case studies that have collected in the field. We will examine different vehicle operating systems and use that knowledge to power a winning diagnostic strategy. These case studies were selected from vehicles diagnosed over the past 5 years and bring valuable information to the table.
With the introduction of as many as 60+ controllers on today's vehicles it is important for this seminar to give technicians a wide spectrum of problems on a vehicle to help them better understand that a good diagnostic game plan can be applied to each and every system by simply knowing and understanding the foundation of on-board computers. Each case study will provide a strategy of approach to resolve each issue and will be coupled with theory of operation to help the students better understand how a system works when building a plan of attack.
This seminar will focus on ways to utilize different types of equipment in your shop to test and probe vehicles as well as introduce newer test equipment that may help you better expedite the diagnostic process. This is not a Tip & Tricks seminar but more of a seminar on how did I get there. If you eat, drink and sleep diagnostics then this is a seminars for you!

"Reprogramming with J-2534"
Instructor's Pete Meier and "G" Jerry Truglia
Today there are two to three options for programming or reprogramming modules on vehicles. In the aftermarket most shops and technicians cannot afford to purchase all the dealer tools or even an AutoLogic for European vehicles. There is an alternative the Drew Tech/ Launch/Snap-On/ Bosch J2534 reprogramming box.
This webinar will focus on using the J2534 box to reprogram vehicles in the aftermarket. The webinar will provide all the necessary steps to follow, some simple and some not so simple. With so many different OE websites and different procedures any step that is not followed will waste time and cost you money. This webinar will help provide you with information on what you need to know about J2534 programming in order to keep you out of trouble.

“Advanced Use of the Oscilloscope”
Instructor Bernie Thompson
This is an advanced class on oscilloscope use. The oscilloscope is the technician’s window into this world of waveform relationships. In order to understand electronic circuits, you must first understand the relationship between different electronic devices. This class starts with how the waveform is created, but mostly emphasizes new and practical techniques for analyzing waveforms. Afterward, the seminar focuses on the interaction of waveforms and using this information to determine where exactly the failure is located. Real world problems are explained in detail so you will be able to use this information in the service bay for faster diagnostics on modern vehicles.
Advanced Use of the Oscilloscope
Bernie Thompson of ATS teaches technicians at February 2009's TST seminar about the Oscilloscope, from the basics to its most advanced uses. This is perhaps our most advanced seminar ever presented, but attendees agree that no one is left in the dust.
**IMPORTANT NOTE: There is a case study missing at the end of this seminar. This was due to technical difficulties out of our control. We regret that this information is NOT available. We apologize for the inconvenience.Bernie Thompson
